Identifying Energy Savings with the Tinytag Energy Logger

24 September 2017

Using an energy consumption logger is an effective means of checking power usage – it is often easier to look at logger readings than attempt to decipher electricity bills (which are often estimated) or meter readings.

The Tinytag Energy Logger form Gemini Data Loggers is a portable data recorder which monitors single and three phase power usage typically in premises with high consumption equipment. Recorded data can then be analysed to help understand how and where energy is used and to identify opportunities for reduction.

It is ideal for monitoring energy consumption in line with ESOS, ISO 50001, and other energy management requirements. The Energy Logger can be used to monitor individual equipment, to help build consumption profiles, monitor electrical distribution and provide sub-metering information. 

• Spot checks or longer term recording
• Self-configuring
• Small and lightweight
• Simple display, download and management of data
• £795 +VAT for full kit

The Energy Logger uses non-invasive flexible coils to monitor the current in each phase of a three-phase supply, while voltage information may be obtained via a standard 13A wall socket. Safe and easy to use, the logger records data which is downloaded to a PC – where it presented initially in graphs and tables in the easy to use Tinytag Explorer Software – to help identify times of peak load and to identify power hungry or inefficient equipment. The unit also records 'Power Factor' (PF) data, a measure of power transmission efficiency: this can be significant because power companies typically charge a higher rate for industrial or commercial customers with a low PF.

Energy monitoring and careful analysis of results can lead to specific, straightforward and practical ways of cutting energy consumption and meeting environmental management targets. A five-minute video on Gemini’s website gives an overview of how the Energy Logger works and its capabilities.

The Tinytag Energy Logger is manufactured in the UK by Gemini Data Loggers. Gemini has been manufacturing the Tinytag range of data loggers in the UK since 1984, and trades globally with a network of over 40 distributors.
